several efforts to do that, involving millions of patients through a large health-care system like kaiser and many others, in which we are doing research for doing actual practical trials in these very large groups -- or doing actual practical trials. the advantage is you are making discoveries in the place where they will be implemented, rather than doing it, for instance, in an academic center where they meet -- where there may be a gap between development and getting it to the community. there's also bringing in the community at the get go and making sure the kinds of questions asked will give you the kinds of answers that people in the community are looking for. >> reinvention is always appreciated for both of you. what type of oversight or financial controls are in place to ensure that federal funding is being used effectively to prevent and treat substance abuse, use, disorders, and mental illnesses? what needs to be done? what changes are needed? >> i will start with that question. for almost all of our programs, we do an evaluation to see what kind of outcomes we are getting and w

, they would not be accessing obamacare, they would not get healthcare, they would not get federal government subsidies during that time as they are applying for their citizenship. so, these are things that are all going to be ironed out on capitol hill. the question is, how much opposition will there be, considering that republicans look at the political landscape that has changed? i mean mitt romney lost to 27% of the latino vote in november. that is a big demographic shift towards the democrats and republicans are looking at tha. jon: i also remembered when ronald reagan signed the immigration act of 1986 that was supposed to end the illegal immigration problem once and for all and here we are with 11 or so million illegal aliens back in this country. is there the feeling that this could fix it once and for all? >> reporter: i think there are skeptics on both sides of the aisle. i do think that the focus on security along the border is being first, and that was tried in 2007, you'll remember by president george w. bush and senator mccain, frankly, and that focus first is really what this p
